The first thing is that you have to do some configuring of both Java and Safari to get the applet to run at all.
Once that was all done, I could log in from all my Macs, fire up the applet and establish a secure connection. I made sure that the Safari and Java preferences were set the same on each machine but still no joy.
They say it's not a bug, it's by design here, even though Google's support page says it accepts Safari 4 as a fully supported browser.
If you want Google searches to go back to the modern style, you need to change your User-Agent string.
Thanks for your many years of attention and everything you've done to make the site such a valuable resource.
I sometimes find the Java setup on my various Apple devices to be a mystery.
I think the actual hint here is a reminder that if a site misbehaves, changing the user agent can be an effective troubleshooting tool.] Usually I want to open Gmail in Chrome and URLs pointing to my development server in Firefox. There is this nifty free app called Lin Castor that enables you to register your own handler for an URL.
Although it had beed designed to register your own non-standard URL schemes, it can intercept standard http and https as well.
For example I have a JIRA app wrapper which looks for anything staring with We respect its storied history, and value the contributions of its many readers, but we can no longer support it at the level it deserves.Theres a wealth of great information here that many will find useful, so we've elected to maintain it in a read-only form.Phrases like 'Call my wife' or 'Tell my dad' stopped working.Siri knew who those people were but proclaimed 'Uh oh, I don't have a phone number for Jane Isa Doe." and beneath, there's a message: "Content Not Available." I debugged this for over an hour and on a hunch, found a workaround that seems to work for nearly everyone who has tried it.
